Dr. Louis Kalombo is a licensed dentist in Washington DC, Virginia and Maryland. The doctor attended all local Washington DC Universities, starting at The American University, where he obtained his bachelor degree in science, and then finished his dental studies at Howard University where he was awarded his Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree. Dr. Kalombo has been practicing for over 5 years now, and places his focus on several treatments, including Root Canal Therapy, Implants, Extractions (Wisdom, Surgical and Simple), Cosmetic Dentistry and Dentures. The doctor provides basic dentistry as well, including cleanings (simple and deep) and cavity filling. Dr. Kalombo is both fluent in the French and the English language.

At Family Dental Center, its all about satisfying the patient through proper, delicate and best individually tailored dental services available. The doctor and his staff understand the fear of dentistry in the general population; hence ensure each patient is cared for according to their set of problems. Dr. Kalombo practices oral and conscious sedation to help patients that would otherwise not seat in a dental chair due to fear. This office takes time to ensure patients comfort before anything else.

They lied and filed a false claim against my insurance.

I went here in a pinch to get my teeth cleaned. Cleaning was inadequately done by a Dentist employed there as opposed to a bonafide dental hygienist.. The Dentist Kalombo only appears to be concerned about money(it's obvious) and not the patient evident by when asked to look at a crown that came out of my implant, "I was told to go back to the dentist that put it in"! Keeping in mind it was over ten years ago and the dentist is nowhere near. I would of thought the dentist would of at least look at it and make suggestions. Family Dentist??! Couldn't be bothered!! My advise is to stand clear of this practice unless you are desperate perhaps like I was initially when going in to get my teeth clean.!

This dentist office is a fraud,the bill your insurance for procedures you haven't had. They billed my insurance stating I came on a day I didn't come at all. 2 times they fraudulently billed my health insurance. I'm filing charges because now I need work done and they have exhausted my benefits from this year and last year. Dr Kalombo is a slickster!@

Louis Kalombo is not fit to be a DMD because he lacks the qualities. He's so rude(so very rude), unprofessional and best believe doesn't care about his job. I was left 40mins unattended after I was numb different times to replace temporary tooth. I asked if everything was okay; couple mins later I got a message that I will have to reschedule due to the doctor having an emergency.I asked why I wasn't informed all this while of waiting. He never felt sorry but instead asked me to leave his office. If I can get negative star to show how I feel about this business; I would. DON'T GO HERE!!!! He will abandon an already started job with zero apology!!! #scaryguy#ShouldBeReevaluated#unprofessional

I went to get my wisdom teeth removed in September of 2021 and he fractured my jaw and caused me to get an infection from jamming so many needles in my mouth to numb me he didn't care about how rough he was while removing my teeth he actually told me "you're Alive right so ur going to feel pain" after I told him multiple times that I could feel him yanking my tooth out which caused my my face to be swollen for a month

This dental office did caps on my teeth without informing me until they were drilling in my mouth so they could charge my insurance. No consultation is given because they want to charge Medicaid. Staff very unprofessional! I would rate 0 but not an option

Dr Kalombo is an excellent Doctor, he helped me with my Teeth extraction and deep cleaning . At first I was really nervous but he helped me overcome it and now I feel great all thanks to him and the entire team. I highly recommend this place, believe me you won't regret it, great customer services and as soon as you come in they will have your appointment started really quick. Can't wait to back for my next visit.

This was my first time visiting and was a bit ahead of schedule but the front desk and those that worked on my teeth were extremely helpful and accommodating. Edit- Unfortunately, I had to reduce my rating of this location due to the horrible follow up experience that I received today. I'll start by saying that most of the employees at this location are kind but the dentist today was extremely unprofessional. I don't remember him ever introducing himself and he was out of uniform. When he learned that he would be performing restorations on my wisdom teeth he made a comment out loud that he wasn't sure that he wanted to do it which did not set the tone right. He failed to tell me that he would be injecting me with anesthesia THREE TIMES in my mouth before doing so. Eventually I reached my limit and asked out loud why he needed to administer the injection more than once and he ignored me. Throughout the rest of the procedure I was super tense because I did not trust this guy. His beside manner and communication skills were the worst that I've ever experienced in dentistry. I declined to make an appointment after the next 6 months. It's a shame that an experience that started off well at this location ended bad and untrustworthy.

dr. louis b. kalombo, all lower casings." He is extremely abrupt with arrogance." He is a rude doctor and has no professional ethics about himself. His only concern of interest is money and not the patient," which is an human being first, before anything else." dr. louis kalombo has a very evil and undesirable spirit and should not be allowed to work the medical field. On September 28, 2021 @ 3:30 pm., I had an appointment to see him concerning a past extraction that was done by him on 7-13-21. My top tooth broke from a past root canal I had done from another doctor. Unfortunately while I was eating, it broke, so I had it extracted by dr. kalombo which he was sort of mean then, plus rough with how he jammed the needle into my gums. dr. louis kalombo has a very nasty attitude and act as though he don't want to be bothered, he's not a very nice doctor, and he made sure to make me so uncomfortable until I cried... and I'm 64 years of age. He told me I wasn't to come back to him for services because I called my credit card holder and asked what he was paid and I also stated to them that I was in a lot of pain and that the laughing gas didn't work, I felt everything and because of that, they took back the payment, which I wasn't aware of until he informed me of this on my appointment with him. This nasty dr. intentionally embarrassed me in front of the other patients that were there. dr. kalombo was sincerely upset about sixty odd dollars that was reversed back to my credit card do to his negligence in work. If you read the reviews, I'm not the only one that has had a bad experience with this evil abrupt and arrogant abuser." He abuses his patients with poor interest of concern for their well being and his license should be revoked." ( WARNING," STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS DENTIST, HE ONLY CARES ABOUT MONEY AND YOUR INSURANCE BENEFITS ) NOT A GOOD DOCTOR FOR YOU NOR YOUR LOVE ONES !!"

I wish could review without any stars! I will say the front desk receptionist was very professional. Dentist was horrible. My child has been to him on 2 separate occasions. The first root canal wasn't done properly but we weren't aware until when she had to go back. Also, he would numb my child and go work on another patient and tried to numb her again because he was negligent. The second root canal process was horrible; repeat of the numbing and I had to say words so he wouldn't go work on another patient. He did anyway and my daughter wasn't completely numb. Here we are months down the line and all her filling has come out. So I am looking at just a hole in my child's my mouth. I wouldn't recommend anyone coming to this facility let alone bringing your child!
